Let's continue the new series overview. At the same time, Jessica Jones premiered on Netflix the competition in Amazon release "The Man in the High Castle" this time based on Philip K. Dick book with the same title.
I have to admit I was waiting for it more than for Jessica Jones adaptation, as I read the book and was captivated by the idea. My first alternative universe reading.

If you don't know the book, the premise is we are in an alternative universe where Nazis win the WWII, and the USA is divided between Japan and Germany. It's already 1960... everything is different and in the book people find a book that says alternative story - that Germans lost the war. I saw the first full season, and it's maybe 1/3 of the book - I read it the long time ago. It's time to read it again.

Camera work, the feeling of the times, and the differences are beautifully done so if you are interested to try it out.

I have read the book a few years ago, and didn't really manage to get into it (maybe I should give it a second try). But I definitely plan on trying out this show as all my shows are taking their winter break. I had seen the pilot when it was first released and it looked intriguing (if maybe a little too violent).

I think it's worth the look :) As for violence it's much less than in Jessica Jones :D It's actually pretty tame in violence.

And I have no intention of watching Jessica Jones. ;)
I thought the torture scene in the Pilot of High Castle was getting really close to what I can stand. And since the Nazis are ruling the world there's a lot of potential for *horrible* things, so I was a little worried...

That all depends on what make you squint. There are occasional murder and bodies, but I think the torture in the pilot is the most violent one.

Ɓaaaaa!! I just discovered that the first scene of the pilot, the movie one? It was filmed in Paramount Theatre in Seattle! I've been there! Oh damn I need to watch it again... MONORAIL!!

Dead bodies, I can do with. Even the creepy ones from Bones. Usually it's the implied pain that I can't stand (hence my hate for torture scenes and creepy serial killers).

Oh that's great :) I need to rewatch it too, then. Was only the pilot shot in Seattle?

I'm not sure how big part of the whole series was shot in real Seattle. Some was for sure looking at the pilot :) But most of it was filmed in Vancouver and studios there.

Oh yeah! Unfortunately, they don't have such vast network of people saying where series are filming and damn it's far to the places they usually do. I was in Vancouver when they were filming this one :( Over an hour of travel to get to the dam where part of it was shot.

Although Twitter is quite good at spotting some, I think they filmed Flash recently near by place I was staying :D

Yes. I haven't seen many images of the filming of The Frankenstein Code/Lookinglass/Second Chance either (I guess the constant change of name doesn't help...)
I'd love to go catch some filming there but I wouldn't know how to find them.

Their official production address is in Burnaby, which seems the hub of movie studios in the area :)
